Now it seems that the modifications to the Comeng trains are now also extending to the internal lighting.

I had set 525M-1113T-526M on the Craigieburn Line yesterday as set 526M-1113T-525M-529M-1117T-517M and the passenger saloon had been fitted with new style bright cool white lighting, replacing the former darker lighting. These modifications were also done to the entire X'Trapolis fleet. The other Alstom half of the set had the original lighting.

As such, I have altered the thread to include these modifications, so any set you see with the new lighting, please feel free to post it.

677M-1189T-678M appears to be the first Alstom Comeng fitted with the new door handles.
Sighted running as set 678M-1189T-677M-451M-1076T-452M on the Craigieburn Line yesterday.

Also sighted EDI Comeng sets 365M-1042T-383M and 547M-1124T-548M modified.

For the Alstom Comeng with the new handles, are they green or yellow on the inside?

Yesterday sighted EDI sets 497M-1099T-498M and 549M-1125T-550M modified.

Also set 578M-1139T-577M-579M-1140T-580M was coupled together yesterday with half (579/580 half) having the new handles. To answer Matty's question, the outside handles are the same as the EDI ones. I don't know about inside at this stage but it will only be a matter of time before we find out.

Now if only they start a deep clean program for the Comeng fleet like they have for the X'trapolis & Siemens fleet.

I'll modify the list to show Siemens trains that have undergone the deep clean refurbishment as not all sets that received the reduced seating layout have been cleaned.

Sets 727M-2514T-728M, 735M-2518T-736M & 841M-2571T-842M have now been modified.

Alstom Comeng 523M-1112T-524M has also been fitted with new handles and to answer Hayden's question, the handles are yellow on the inside, which certainly stands from the green interior

The following Siemens Sets have now been modified.

717M-2509T-718M
803M-2552T-804M

773M-2537T-774M may also have been done but I didn't get a proper view of it, but I'm pretty sure I saw the new stickers from the outside. Will have to confirm that one again later.
